I just created this database using the IB_SQL script utility:

set sqldialect 3;
create database 'y:\gdb_6\test\test_dalton.gdb' page_size 8192 user
'sysdba' password 'masterkey';

What are you doing to create a database with IB_SQL?

IMO, you can't beat command-line gbak ;-) straight from a shell or shell
script. But Martin Schmid's IBBackup (FBBackup) is a very neat Windows
backup client and works well remotely.
